    1. Deljuan Robinson was a BEAST today. That's the sort of play we need from our DT's.

    2. I don't think it's possible to express in words the sheer admiration and love I have for Steve Slaton. He just keeps fighting. He never gives up. And he uses his head. That play last week to get out of bounds with 1 second and then that play today to go down in bounds was the mark of a player with a brain. Of course, I'd prefer he just dive down instead of take a knee because if you take a knee like that, you're going to get blasted.

    Yes he is. He definitely was a key to our victory today. I would like to see him and Okoye on the interior line for a whole season.

    Seriously, Deljuan=Tommie Harris today, who would have guessed it. We don't win this game without the plays he made, no doubt in my mind.

    I continue to be pleased by the hustle and complete lack of quit this team has shown. It would have been easy to put the season in the tank when sitting at 3-7. Unlike some other teams which seem to have just cashed it in, the Texans are now playing their best football ever.

    Says a lot about the players and the coaching staff (*maybe* even Smith.)

    NFL.com has Dejuan listed as 303lbs. That's not the cheeseburger gobbling DT I've seen people ask for on the line. Just makes me think again that the DTs on the team haven't been utilized properly

    Either Richard Smith has been using his brain finally or someone else is game planning and calling.

    At least twice, Winston was seen dragging Slaton for extra yards.

    My favorate was the time he had him in a bear hug
